WHO WE ARE

LB Beauty Education Foundation, Inc. (LBBEF)is a non-profit organization providing business education to professionals, in the beauty industry, through an innovative teamwork approach. The Business Education Program is comprised of successful beauty entrepreneurs and other industry professionals. LBBEF is the sole foundation in the state of Virginia, to provide scholarship candidates with a tuition-free Business Development Course, focusing on the beauty industry.

No other course available today teaches beauty professionals about the nuances of owning a business. Talent and creativity drive most business owners, but many entrepreneurs lack education in the areas that constitute good business practice. LBBEF’s business development course addresses these areas and plans to change the void that exists in the industry business practices.

The course curriculum is facilitated by beauty professionals and other field and subject matter experts. The curriculum is comprised of an array of areas: including business planning, human resources, marketing and social media, accounting and bookkeeping, financial planning, insurance, tax preparation, and much more. To date, there have been 12 beauty professionals who have graduated from the business development course.
